By using a documenting calibrator, the calibration results are stored automatically in the calibrator’s memory during the calibration process. The engineer does not have to write any results down on paper and so the whole process is much faster and costs are therefore reduced.
Quality and accuracy of calibration results will also improve, as there will be fewer mistakes due to human error. The calibration results are transferred automatically from the calibrator’s memory to the computer/database. This means the engineer does not spend time transferring the results from his notepad to final storage on a computer, again, saving time and money.
With instrument calibration, the calibration procedure itself is critical. Performing the calibration procedure in the same way each time is important for consistency of results.
With a documenting calibrator, the calibration procedure can be automatically transferred from the computer to the handheld calibrator before going out into the field. As Heikki Laurila, Product Manager of calibrator manufacturer Beamex, states: “Engineers who are out in the field performing instrument calibrations, get instant pass or fail messages with a documenting calibrator. The tolerances and limits for a sensor, as well as detailed instructions on how to calibrate the transmitter, are input once in the calibration management software and then downloaded to the calibrator. This means calibrations are carried out in the same way every time as the engineer is being told by the calibrator which test point he needs to measure next. Also, having an easy-to-use documenting calibrator is definitely the way forward, especially if calibration is one of many tasks that the user has to carry out in his or her daily maintenance routine.”
Heikki Laurila continues: “With a documenting calibrator such as the Beamex® MC5 or the Beamex® MC4, the user can download calibration instructions for hundreds of different instruments into the device’s memory before going out into the field. The corresponding calibration results for these instruments can be saved in the device without the user having to return to his PC in the office to download/upload data. This means the user can work for several days in the field.”
